BELT: simple geometrics, soft and rounded lines for an elegant image.
The Belt collection includes a freestanding bathtub and five washbasins, with a slim edge, made of in matt Tecno – a hardwearing, robust and high-value material – and characterised by elegant matt surfaces, highlighted by a rigorous minimalist look. “BELT”, the name of the range, takes its inspiration from the unusual external edge that seems “encircled and squeezed” by a belt; this detail in the shape causes a variation in the depth of the material which results in an interesting play of light and shade. The volume becomes lighter and therefore stands out towards the top, imparting a feeling of lightness and of refined aesthetic purity.
The washbasins belonging to the Belt collection are broken down into 4 countertop solutions in basic geometric shapes – circle, square, rectangle and oval – and 1 built-in model.
